    This is a thread for you to post what you like about Genz Benz Bass Gear and photos of your rigs. A pic with a Genz head and different make cabs or vise verse is totally acceptable. Think of this thread as a parting salute to these guys and showing your appreciation and love for these products/tools and how they have helped you or given you enjoyment. I will post some pics shortly.

    This is not a lets debate what FMIC did, lets try to keep it positive (I am the first that can get off down in the ditch).

    Didn't realize that when I bought my Streamliner 600 I was purchasing a bit of history.

    Here's a pretty poor phone shot from the gig last night. Rig is a Shuttle 9.0 sitting on a Berg HD112. Looks little, sounds big. You wouldn't know from the photo; but, that's the back of the bandstand for a 21 piece Big Band. We were gigging at a local airfield called Falcon Field in one of the hangars. About 1500 people in attendance. Large FOH arrays, but Sound guy said that little cab pretty much carried the place. He also loved the DI.

    I had to have two, just because. Pay no attention to that Acoustic 370 stuck in the middle there. I really have to thank TB for steering me towards purchasing these. They are warm, fat and plenty loud, if you need it. Also, thanks to Jeff Genzler and good luck to you and your associates in whatever is next in store for you.

    Shuttlemax 12.0 and Uber 410.
    I sometimes add a fEARful 212 if I need additional volume, say for an outside gig or whatever.

    I also was helped to buy Genz Benz when I played through a fellow TB ers 6.0 combo. So My main rig is Shuttle6.0 with 2x12t cabs. I've been playing bass since 1965 and played through just about every rig known to man and this is by far the best and last rig for me.

    Here are mine. I like them all for different reasons. A Shuttle 9.0 with a single 410 (GB Uber); another Shuttle 9.0 with two Aggie 112's; and a Contour 500 115 combo amp with Contour 115 extension cab.

    This is my Shuttle 6.0 / 12T with a Shuttle 2x10 under it. They stack perfectly and open up the amp at 4 ohms.

    Now the amp on top is a Shuttle 6.2 and it's everything I need.

    Streamliner 900 into pair of Bag End S-15 cabs. Sounded awesome. I ended up selling the head.

    I now run this pair of Uber Quad cabs with an Orange Terror Bass 500 or a GK MB800. Sounds fantastic.
